5.Fall Planning- MDE has given us 3
models that could start the 20-21
school year. One is having students
back full time in a normal capacity, a
hybrid model, or distance learning. Fall
sports and activities discussion included paying coaches and advisors should
fall sports happen or not happen. The
Minnesota School Board Association
has a position to pay any fall sport
coaches and activity advisors pro rata
for time worked. Moving forward, Dr.
Engebritson will provide the Board with
“if this/then that” scenario’s for how/if
fall sports coaches and activity advisors
will be paid depending on the direction
of the MSHSL and MDE.
6.20-21 Budget- Business Manager,
Michelle Hopkins, provided the Board
with 20-21 budget considerations and
proposal. COVID-19 considerations,
general fund balance history, the 2020
revised budget and the 2021 budget
were included in the discussion. The
revised 2020 & proposed 20-21 budget
will be approved at the June 22, 2020
regular school board meeting.
7.Collaboration Discussion-Hibbing,
Chisholm, Nashwauk-Keewatin, and
Floodwood are looking at ways to
collaborate with curriculum. Dr. Engebritson was invited to attend the meeting
to discuss the options. She feels it
would be a good idea for us to have a
spot in the discussions to explore curriculum options with these neighboring
schools. The cost for us to be a part of
is $2,500 if ISD #2142 is also on board.
This would be brought to the Board for
approval at our regular school board
meeting on June 22, 2020.
